Court asks authorities to confiscate assets of DIG Mizan


A Dhaka court has directed the authorities concerned to confiscate assets and freeze bank accounts of Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Md Mizanur Rahman.

Judge KM Emrul Kayesh of Senior Special Judges' Court issued the order after hearing on a petition filed by the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) Director Md Manjur Morshed on Thursday.

Earlier on June 12, ACC Director Md Manjur Morshed was tasked with the investigation into the allegation of wealth amassed illegally by Mizan.

Earlier, DIG Mizanur Rahman alleged that ACC Director Enamul Basir, accepted bribes worth Tk40 lakh (in two phases) from him in exchange for information.

On June 10, the ACC suspended Basir and removed him from the probe team that was investigating the wealth of DIG Mizan, for leaking a probe report to DIG Mizan.

Last year, the ACC launched an investigation into the wealth of DIG Mizan after he was relieved of his duty following allegations of torturing a woman. Basir was a member of the ACC probe team tasked to probe the DIG’s wealth.
